About this ebook

‘Fantastic… got a hold of me from beginning to the end. I was desperate to know how it ended and at the same time, I did not want to finish reading... I will be thinking of this book for a long time.’ Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


How did I forget the worst thing that’s ever happened to me? And how do I try and put it right?


The first time I remembered, I thought I was dying. I couldn’t breathe – something was crushing my chest – all I could see was darkness. A terrible fear, pulling me under. And all because of a glimpse of a face I hadn’t seen in years.

Since then I’ve realised: this is a memory of an attack. Something vicious happened to me years ago – a night that changed my life, without me even knowing. My family and friends don’t believe me – they say I’m imagining things, but I know I’m right. What I don’t know is who was responsible. And I won’t stop until I find out.

Wherever the truth leads me. Whatever betrayals are uncovered. Whatever the risk.


A heart-stopping psychological suspense novel that asks: who do you trust the most? Your friends? Your family? Or your own mind? Fans of T.M. Logan, Claire McGowan and Lisa Jewell will be gripped by Close My Eyes.

First thing, I love the way the book was structured with (almost) alternating chapters between Beth and Gemma; two close friends with compelling events going on behind their own closed doors which had me gripped from start to end. I read this almost 400 page book in 2.5 days and there was a reason for that. I cared big-time about the characters. It’s also true that I found both characters to be totally relatable. We’ve all either been a Beth or Gemma (maybe to a lesser degree) or we know a Beth or Gemma. If you don’t personally then I’m sure the #MeToo movement highlighted some key issues for you to ponder over. Every element of this book screamed real. The events and happenings weren’t over dramatised which only added to the authenticity. Some of the topics examined were PTSD and anxiety, and the brain’s power to shut disturbing life events away until triggers force them back into the forefront of the mind. ‘Close My Eyes’ is a powerful book and quite terrifyingly shows how a person’s world can be thrown into turmoil without warning. I loved the ending too! If you enjoy a real feeling psychological thriller that’s full of tension, mystery and will have you racing through every page, then ‘Close My Eyes’ is your book!

Close My Eyes, the latest offering by Beverley Harvey, is one twisty tale that I could not get enough of! It is definitely just a one more chapter kind of read and like me, you may just find yourself losing time until there are no more chapters left to be read! I do love it when this happens. Beverley Harvey has created a thrilling and thought provoking tale that will have you hooked right from the prologue. I found it a fascinating look into the mind and how a chance sighting of someone can trigger repressed memories and throw a life into such turmoil. It delves into PTSD, abuse and rape to name just a few, which may be a trigger for some readers, but they have been dealt with sensitively. The characters have been well crafted, are believable and had me invested in them. I enjoyed the interchanging chapters between Gemma and Beth and the reader is given a great insight into each of their lives and struggles. Close My Eyes definitely gets the heart pumping and is very addictive. A well plotted, written, dark and character driven story, this is one that is a must read for the psychological suspense fans out there.
